Veteran’s Health Administration Announces New Trading Partner Requirements
The Veteran’s Health Administration announced new requirements that affect all of their current and future trading partners.
In a January 23rd, 2024 press release, the VHA has announced that they will require all current and future vendors (trading partners) that provide prescription products within the Veterans Affairs (VA) health system to register with Pulse by NABP.
The VHA has stated that the new registration requirement has been put in place to help ensure that their prescription medication suppliers are appropriately licensed.
“VHA is committed to protecting the health and safety of our nation’s veterans,” said the leadership of the VHA Pharmacy Benefits Management. “Requiring our vendors to register in Pulse will provide the VA with additional tools to help us to ensure that the medications our veterans receive are safe and authentic. We are grateful that NABP is providing free registration for all members of the supply chain.”
This widely impacts all pharmaceutical manufacturers and wholesale distributors who provide prescription products within the Veterans Affairs (VA) health system.
